The City Council approved the final design plan for the Clement Avenue Safety Improvement Project on Tuesday, July 7, 2020, which includes two travel lanes for automobiles and trucks, a two-way bikeway on the north side of the street, parking on the south side of the street and intermittent parking on the north side of the street. Environmental clearance was completed in 2021 and design was completed in summer 2023. Construction is expected to begin in late-2023.
In April 2017, the Alameda County Transportation Commission awarded a grant to the City of Alameda for $5 million to improve Clement Avenue. Improvements include the removal of the abandoned railroad tracks, installing a bikeway and enhancing pedestrian access. This project will construct a portion of the Cross Alameda Trail while ensuring that this designated truck route is in a good state of repair and maintaining truck access. Clement Avenue is the main thoroughfare in the Northern Waterfront priority development area and is a gateway to Oakland, Fruitvale BART and beyond. This project consists of a bikeway, curb extensions, sidewalk/curb ramp improvements and railroad track removal.
